7. My Winnipeg - 8/10
This, then, is my favorite Guy Maddin film so far. What an astonishing portrait of his hometown, a beautiful mix of mythological documentary and autobiography packed into some fictional meta-plot. A documentary such as this one I had not encountered before – if one can even call it simply such.
I requested that from the library for last month's challenge when it would count as a triple. But it finally came, so I'm glad it counts for a challenge this month. And good to hear this is good!
Don't know how you feel about Guy Maddin, but as someone who enjoys documentaries this should and hopefully will be well worth your time.

Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

8. Katzelmacher (1969) - 7/10
A handful of people, abstractly lingering and ignorantly idling, each one alienated and alone and unable to communicate in any meaningful way, epitomize a society sunk into lethargy till the emergence of a foreigner pulls them out of their apathetic behavior and enables them to briefly express their disaffection – verbal as well as nonverbal. Only my 11th Fassbinder film, I think, but I still have to see one which I didn’t enjoy.

Frankly, I don't quite understand why that film is on Rosenbaum's list.

Quick aside: Why do we have a list and challenge devoted to this one critic, who I'd never heard of before this joining this forum? I've only read his sex in movies article, which made me just a bit nauseous.

Starting with only 331 to go for bronzeShow
1. Vinyl (1965) #532
"2. Shorts (60m):
Valse Triste (1977, 5m) #698
The Heart of the World (2000, 6m) #978
Dumb-Hounded (1943, 7m) #221
Screwball Squirrel (1944, 7m) #237
Jammin' the Blues (1944, 10m) #234

Mutable Fire (1984, 8m) #777
Lmno (1978, 10m) #709"
3. Ivan the Terrible, Part I (1945)

The set design, the framing, the shadows and just about every aspect of the cinematography were great. I expected as much, and it delivered. The storytelling of the plot itself didn't grab me, but still a very fine film to watch.

Someone else will have to speak to the "why is this list official" question, but for the "why is this an official challenge" question boils down to "people around here voted for it." I suspect it's because it's a long and interesting list that tends to be underseen by many of us, but it really just is that we voted for it. :shrug:

Not a bad start to this acclaimed series, I guess. There are certainly some charismatic law enforcement characters in the mix, though I actually found myself more compelled by the drug dealer's side of the story and his reevaluation of how to tackle his problems such as some of his lowlife customers using fake money to buy his product. Very nice, steady and controlled performance from Lawrence Gilliard Jr. and some unexpectedly pretty shots in the mix too, such as above.

Interesting developments begin to surface here as the cops come across as more dishonorable (hitting an innocent in the bystander in the eye). Lawrence Gilliard Jr. once again delivers the film's best performance with moral conflicts. He gives a great speech about chicken nuggets too. Lance Reddick is beginning to impress me too though as we see how much he is caught between a rock and a hard place, forced to help out his reckless officers lest it reflect poorly upon him.

Yes, for the first time. It's actually pretty interesting already (two and a half episodes in). I'll keep posting episode-by-episode updates for whatever I manage to get through of the series during January.

Lawrence Gilliard Jr. is continuing to impress me the most of the ensemble cast here. His chess analogy (you don't become the king but if you get to the other side you can become a queen) resonates quite a bit, and his recollections of how he snuck up on a woman in the middle of the night who he had been told to kill are utterly intense. We also start to see a bit more of the cop characters, particularly the banter between Kima and Bubbles and McNulty's inner torment over being effectively estranged from his son.

Man, The Wire ended more than ten years ago. Hadn't realized...

12. Mùi du du xanh (1993) - 8/10
A tender and very sensual film which strength lies in its soothing tranquility and the beauty of simplicity it expresses. The second part especially belongs to the finest forty minutes I have seen in a long time lyrically wise.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Interesting developments continue to occur while we continue to see more of the cop characters. Particularly memorable is McNulty having to take his kids to work when duty calls on the one evening that he has with them. Lance Reddick is also continuing to impress me as the hardworking Lt. Daniels who constantly finds himself against roadblocks in his attempts to work the case - though once again it is ultimately the drug dealers who fascinate me more.

Things are beginning to turn for me as I am starting to find the cops' side of the story more compelling than the drug dealers', especially as the whole team start finding roadblocks in their investigation (trying to convict a senator almost leads to their entire operation being shut down). McNulty's judge friend also finally gets a chance to show his true worth, and McNulty himself is becoming a more interesting character even if I still find Lt. Daniels preferable on the cop side.
